Quiet Sunday morning in the wake of a wake. May we all be blessed by such excellent friends!
It’s Saturday night, we’re finally feeling better, & what’s our ideal activity? Sitting in the living room listening to Mel Torme. Really.
Without seeing my tweet, Joe impulsively switches to The New Pornographers. I love my eclectic sweetheart!
Warning: this cold that’s going around is a doozy. Commence evasive action: frequent handwashing, waving instead of hugging, etc.
Fellow cold/scratchy throat sufferers! Take an orange & put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Cut into 8ths. Eat the cold tart bliss
Turns out even freelancers have a boss that drops surprise projects. New plan: work on this slight fever, weakness, & scratchy throat.
Mercifully, “morning of Joe’s 5am alarm” & “morning of pre-6am start of helicopter noise” coinciding. Wouldn’t want this for days in a row.

I'm still hoping Apple will come through with activating the ebook for purchase through iTunes/iBookstore, but it's starting to look as though I may have to launch without it there.

Seems to be a side effect of their quality control for new books and apps and I know I'm far from the first content creator to be impatiently reloading that status screen.
Amazon has obligingly reactivated their Associates program just in time for me to use those links and make a little extra per copy.

There. That's that participation requirement covered.)
Hey ho, the glamorous life.
